The RFID market is projected to reach USD 35.6 billion by 2030 from USD 14.5 billion in 2022; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2022 to 2030.
RFID technology is a modern solution for industrial and consumer applications due to the increasing adoption of information technologies. An RFID solution involves a label or tag and a reader to communicate with the tags. The availability of handheld readers or sled readers has enhanced the capabilities of RFID solutions, as they help track the asset more conveniently at a low cost. The RFID tag technology has evolved from reading from a close distance to more than 100 meters, i.e., active frequency tags. Active frequency tags are not only used to track standalone assets but also to track moving assets and personnel in real time. These tags are now being widely used in industries such as transportation, logistics and supply chain, retail, defense, etc., to track assets in real time. With technological advancements and innovations, the passive ultra-high frequency has been further segmented into a new band (860 to 960 MHz), called RAIN RFID. The adoption of RAIN RFID has increased multifold to reach many suppliers in the ecosystem. It is currently the most adopted RFID frequency globally. Advancements in RFID technology and pricing competitiveness have enabled the suppliers of RFID-based solutions to adopt hybrid technology. The installation of RFID technology as a standalone solution incurs high CAPEX for large area installation. Therefore, companies are integrating RFID with the existing communication technologies of end users to reduce the initial investments and increase their market penetration. Currently, RFID solutions not only provide the data of assets but also enable the analysis of such data to understand the lifecycle management, production cycle, customer analysis, predictive maintenance, etc., in respective industries.
